An overview of the movies released in the UK from 2015-2018 tells the tell a tale of British journey of world-class cinema.
The movies like Spectre, Carol, Room, Brooklyn, 45 years all are of different genre and are unique in their own way.
Spectre and London road boast of top adventure movies. Though the genre is the same, both are different in their own terms. Spectre is a unique James Bond house movie with thrilling action sequences, and London Road deals with the story of a criminal who was found guilty in the murder of five prostitutes. All adventures dealt with different storylines and attractive action sequences.
Far from the madding crowd and 45 years deal with romance. Far from the madding crowd is the film adaptation of the novel MADDING CROWD by Thomas Hardy. It was a huge hit at the box office with $30.2 million collections. 45 years deal with the flashback story of a man who wishes to celebrate his 45th marriage anniversary with his wife.

How can you follow 2018 with so much quality. The year has had an amazing start and some classics are definitely being developed. While we spend our days enjoying the sun, Tim Burton, Ed Norton and the others are working their asses off. I have heard tales of finding Atlantis somewhere out of Portugals coast. Or maybe they are searching for fortune in the desert. Let's wait and see what they come up with, my hopes are high!
Overall, last 5 years have been fabulous for UK movie market and enthralling for the audience.
